I'm calling her DONE! Come see Fancey's Brooms!

I'm calling this one done! I left off the top and bottom borders. When working on linen, they have a tendency not to line up crisply after framing. I attempted the top border early on, but I hated stitching it. So there. LOL. Just to recap, I also replaced the pinwheels with various quaker motifs, which I really enjoyed doing.

Can't tell you how happy I am that she is done! I enjoyed her, but as usual, ready to move on to a new one. Being a monogamous stitcher is boring sometimes. I seem to move so slow at times, but as with everyone, it depends on what is going on in life (and my motivation). 

Keeping up with Project Life, I finished the first spread for Feb. Fancey even made an appearance!

The weekend has been sunny but cold. This week will be a little warmer. I want to put in a perennial bed this year, so I need to start sketching that out and deciding what I want to see out back. We thought we'd have a patio put in off of our deck but that hasn't happened yet, and I don't want to wait any more for flowers. I think I need moonflowers this year too.....

My little Jenny has to have surgery in a couple days (on Tuesday). She needs to have some lipomas removed from her side. This will be the third go-round for this type of thing. They just keep coming back. But we can't let it go, so surgery it is. She looks pitiful here, but she is still very spunky and ornery for being 14.5 yrs old. That's a Jack Russell for you!

I love this dog. She loves us all, but she's kind of a Momma's Girl. A real Princess and the Pea if you know what I mean. 

Hopefully every one of you is warm and has power. We have been very fortunate to have all our services without interruption. As much as I always enjoy seeing snow, I also long for warmer days, extended daylight and the possibilities that spring and summer bring.

Stay warm and see you soon with an update as soon as I figure out what I want to stitch next! Until then,


  1. Fancey looks great.
    Love the motifs.
    I sometimes leave borders off also, it's hard to get hem straight when you finish them.
    Prayers for Jenny, she is too cute!

  2. Well done on Fancey's finish! I like the motifs you added. I am hoping that once the mixed bag of ick moves off later today that will be the end of the sleet/freezing rain/ice nonsense. Jenny is a cutie and will keep her in my thoughts and prayers for her surgery on Tuesday.

    1. ICK is right Robin! Thanks for the good thoughts!

  3. Congrats on finishing Fancey - the quaker motifs look really great. Love your scrapbooking, too and good luck for Jenny's surgery.


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
